Division 2 was the most exciting main this evening. Tom "Kamikaze Kid" Kern started himself on the 30, flew by Mike Rohr in turn one and passed Ron Grace on the inside of turn one in the second lap. In the D-1 consy race David "Colorado Cowboy" Pieper got the gate and Bouncin' Bobby Richards went outside on turn 3 to grab second place. Jay "Do or Die" Gruetzmacher passed Calvin "The Calvinator" Harrington and Don "Batman" Foster went down a few laps later in turn one.

I also must apologize to Rob Ball and all our faithful readers. I misreported the results for August 23. Ball took first in the main, beating the pants off of Blair. Way to go, Rob!

Gene "The Dancin' Machine" Petz and Jammin' Cam Brooks taking second and third, respectively.

We had a nine man Handicap this evening with a Dash for Cash, winner take all. Grace started on 0, Kern, Brooks, Foster and Harrington on the 30, Richards on the 40 and Blair, Ball and Pieper on the 50. Several riders went down in the first lap so we restarted these excited boys. Blair flew on the inside past Richards, but couldn't maintain and went down in turn 3. Brooks took the lead and held on for the win with Kern trying to catch up. Richards, Grace, Foster, Ball and Pieper battled with Ball running outside to take third.
